2014 Price Notes
- The cumulative averages (taking into account all tickets resold since they first became available at the start of the playoffs) for Games 1-3 are as follows: $563 for Game 1, $667 for Game 2 and $1,656 for Game 3. So while the Game 3 average is likely to finish slightly lower than where it sits now, it will be nearly three times the average for Game 1.
- We estimate that $9.6M worth of Game 3 tickets have been exchanged on the secondary market, the most we've ever seen for a single NHL or NBA Finals game. The high for a World Series game is an estimated $11.7M for Game 6 in Boston last year. The figure for the Super Bowl this past year at MetLife Stadium was an estimated $38.3M.
- An interesting note on the markets for Games 1 and 2 in LA: We saw resale prices fall below face value for both games out west in the final 24 hours before puck drop. The last-minute dip was sharpest for Game 1, as the average price on gameday was just $425 and many tickets traded for less than $200. Anecdotally, I've heard that the relatively early start times in LA contributed to the lackluster demand there. Needless to say, we're not close to seeing Game 3 prices fall anywhere close to face value.
- All told, demand has been surprisingly steady for Game 3 tickets, even with the Rangers facing a 2-0 deficit. I might have expected a sharper decline in prices yesterday after the Game 2 loss, but at least for now, Rangers fans haven't given up on this team and are still willing to pay record-high prices to see a Stanley Cup Final at the Garden.
- The average price paid for a resale ticket to Game 3 yesterday was $1,640. That's about equal to the going rate we saw early last week. Demand had peaked mid-week, however, as fans paid more than $1,912 per ticket on Wednesday and Thursday combined, so the average price has fallen 14% in that time.
- The cheapest ticket available is a good deal cheaper now than it was last week. The current get-in price for Game 3 is $812, down 22% from $1,046 a week ago. That $812 will only get you an obstructed view from the 400 level, though; unobstructed tickets start at $900 and up.
- Game 3 and 4 in NY are the most expensive opening Finals games (meaning Games 1 and 2 or 3 and 4) we've recorded at any venue since we started tracking the resale market in the 2009-10 season. The previous high was set in Vancouver in 2011 at $858 per ticket for Games 1 and 2 of the Canucks-Bruins Finals. They're also easily the most expensive tickets we've seen for any event at Madison Square Garden. Game 3 tickets are averaging $1,696 each on the secondary market, and Game 4 tickets are going for $1,818 apiece, far exceeding the previous high of $1,026 per ticket for the 12.12.12 Concert for Sandy Relief.
- One of the most interesting, late-breaking developments in the market today is that the Kings have released face-value tickets for Game 1 as of this morning (including the cheap seats at $349 a pop and lowers in the corner for $629 each, before fees), but similar seats are actually available for less than face value on the secondary market! Those upper-level tickets start at $322 on SeatGeek, and you can grab two seats in Section 117, Row 15 (same $629 face value as those seats pulled on Ticketmaster) for $550.
- Meanwhile, there's absolutely no chance tickets are going to dip anywhere close to face value for Games 3, 4 and 6 at MSG. Most face values for the Rangers' home games ranged from $453 to $725; only rinkside seats and some lower-level seats with club access were originally priced higher than that (anywhere from $1,099 to $2,413 each). The current get-in prices of the three games at MSG -- these are for those upper-level tickets originally priced at $453 -- are $986 for Game 3, $1,069 for Game 4 and $1,686 for Game 6.
- By average ticket price, here's how each game of the series shakes out. You'll notice that prices for even the first two games at MSG exceed those for a possible Game 7 at Staples Center: Game 1 (LA): $644 Game 2 (LA): $799 Game 3 (NY): $1,696 Game 4 (NY): $1,818 Game 5 (LA): $1,071 Game 6 (NY): $2,296 Game 7 (NY): $1,349
- Another fun note on the market for the games at MSG: You can buy a 2014-15 season ticket at several NHL venues for less than the cost of one ticket to a Stanley Cup Finals game in New York. Looking to a couple of the Rangers' and Kings' neighbors for examples, Anaheim Ducks season tickets start at $720 for the full season, and you can lock in your seat to every Islanders home game for $742.50 ($16.50 per ticket x 45 home games, including preseason).
2013 Stanley Cup Playoff Team - New York RangersThe New York Rangers made their stand and managed to qualify for the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Goalie Henrik Lundqvist helped keep them in games with consistently spectacular play, the kind of thing Rangers fans have grown accustomed to during his heralded career. While offseason acquisition Rick Nash helped power the New York Rangers offense, the Blueshirts still found themselves needing something as the shortened regular season came to a close. So, they dealt Marion Gaborik to Columbus at the trade deadline, looking to fortify their depth and grit with a mix of other forwards. Coach John Tortarella is notorious for implementing a grinding, defensive style that can wear on his own players as much as their opponents. The Rangers are surely hoping fresh legs and an aggressive mindset will give their playoff opponents something to think about.
But what the first-round opponent Washington Capitals will be thinking about most often is how to overcome the talented Lundqvist's ability to takeover a series and steal multiple games for a sometimes underwhelming New York Rangers offense. One key weakness in front of Lundqvist is the long-term injury of defenseman Marc Staal, who took a hard slapshot to the eye earlier this year. While Staal attempts to regain full, clear vision and get back on the ice, the Rangers will try to compensate against the talents of MVP-candidate Alexander Ovechkin. This Washington Capitals team, like the Rangers, once faced the threat of not making the playoffs. Because the Caps play in a weaker division, they managed to secure a higher seed and home ice advantage at the Verizon Center in round one. The New York Rangers don't fear 2013 Stanley Cup Playoff games on the road, though; the best way to silence a crowd is shutting down an offense, and the Rangers have a big advantage in that department in round one of the NHL Playoffs and beyond.
New York Rangers Stanley Cup Playoff Opponent
The Rangers finished in a tightly-packed back half of the 2013 NHL Playoffs' Eastern Conference seeding. While they will probably not have home-ice advantage in any round, they can still rely on the Madison Square Garden crowd to provide energy three games/series.

NHL Playoff Preview - New York Rangers
New York Rangers - Because It's the Cup
Rangers - Capitals Highlights - 2/17/2013
2/25/15: There has been so much ink spilled this season about the New York Rangers' struggles that one may believe that they are among the laggards in the NHL. They may be surprised to know that the Rangers are 7-1-2 in the last 10 games and only two points behind the New York Islanders for first place in the Metropolitan Division. What is more is that the Rangers have at least two games in hand over the rest of their Metro rivals, which offers a great chance to jump into first place in the division with about one-fourth of the regular season remaining.
2/18/15: The New York Rangers are following up their Stanley Cup Finals appearance last season with a quality effort in 2014-15. They currently sit a few points behind the New York Islanders and Pittsburgh Penguins and are about tied with the Washington Capitals for the third spot in the Metropolitan Division. Despite playing well as a team, Martin St. Louis is struggling and admits that he is not playing with confidence. That may make fans of the Tampa Bay Lightning happy after his bitter divorce from the Bolts last season, but he will have to improve his game if the Rangers are going to compete in the playoffs this season.
2/11/15: The New York Rangers will be without star goaltender Henrick Lundqvist for the next three weeks or so with a neck injury. The injury occurred a few weeks ago when he was struck in the throat with by the puck. New York is battling with Washington for the third spot in the Metropolitan Division, so the timing is pretty bad. The Rangers may look into picking up a rental goalie for a while, like St. Louis did with Martin Brodeur when Brian Elliott was injured earlier in the year. Brodeur is now retired, but that would be something if the Rangers pulled him in (at the ire of Devils fans everywhere).
2/5/15: It is always something of a cop-out when the team that loses a playoff series beats the victors in the next regular season and claims they got their 'revenge'. So, Montreal (or more likely, the media) can say the Canadiens got revenge on the New York Rangers by defeating them 1-0 last week. Of course, the Rangers could easily say "take the victory tonight, we went to the Stanley Cup last season". The Rangers remain a bubble team for the playoffs, but are in good shape. They host Boston on Wednesday, before heading to Nashville for Saturday and back at home to host the Dallas Stars on Sunday.
1/28/15: The New York Rangers assault on the Metropolitan Division was only stopped by the week-long All Star break. In their last 10 games before the break, the Rangers posted an impressive 8-2 record. That moved them up to third place in the Metro with 58 points - two behind the Penguins and five behind the division leading Islanders. The Rangers will be at home to host the Canadiens on Thursday, Carolina on Saturday and Florida on Monday - meaning they have a good chance to continue their rise up the standings in the first week of the final stretch of the regular season.
1/21/15: The New York Rangers did something that the Toronto Maple Leafs could not do - come out of a West Coast road trip with a successful record. Unfortunately, things came crashing down on them when they returned, highlighted by a 3-0 shutout at the hands of the New York Islanders. There was also the incident against Boston. Bruins forward Brad Marchand slew-footed Rangers center Derick Brassard. Marchand was suspended for two games. That is nice, but does not help the Rangers who are clinging to a wild card spot as the NHL heads into the All-Star break.
1/14/15: The Rangers have shaken off their slow start to the season to get back into the playoff hunt. They had a big west coast trip last week, which took them to play the three California teams - and, perhaps, to humble them a bit. Instead, the Rangers did something that they had never done before. They swept the California swing and got within four points of second place Pittsburgh with two games in hand. Goalie Henrik Lundqvist was outstanding in the week and may end up as one of the NHL's stars of the week with a 4-0-0 record and .950% save percentage.
1/7/15: The New York Rangers have picked a pretty good time to get on a hot streak. By going 9-1 over their last 10 games they have been able to bridge the gap between themselves and the Washington Capitals, while also creating separation from the lower teams in the Metropolitan Division. New York has been excellent at home, but this week they are on a West Coast road trip against some of the best teams in the league. The Rangers are at Anaheim tonight, Los Angeles tomorrow and San Jose on Saturday, before hosting the high-flying New York Islanders on Tuesday. If they can survive this trip with a winning record, they will be in great shape for the second half of the season.
12/3/14: It appears, at least in the press clippings, that there may be a budding rivalry between the New York Rangers and the Tampa Bay Lightning. Tampa took the first two games of the season series by a combined score of 8-4 and the Rangers do not believe they have given a full effort in either game. Add to that premise that the teams swapped captains last season (Martin St. Louis to New York for Ryan Callahan) and we have a good battle in the making. One thing is for certain, the Rangers would like to be more in the Lightning's position in the standings than their own.
11/19/14: The Rangers created a problem with rookie Anthony Duclair. He was a third round pick in 2013 but became the breakout star of the preseason with three goals and five points in five games. That earned him a roster spot. However, he has recently been a healthy scratch. Since he made it through the first dozen games, the Rangers have burned a year of his entry-level contract. He does not want to go back to the junior ranks though, even if staying in the NHL gives him less ice time. So New York may be stuck with him while he develops.
11/12/14: The Rangers are one of those teams that seems to take a step back every time they take a step forward. It shows in their 6-5-2 record and their fifth place standing in the Metropolitan Division. New York lost an entertaining game against the Maple Leafs last Saturday by the score of 5-4, and head coach Alain Vigneault was very critical of the officiating. The bigger issue is not the officiating but Rangers lack of scoring. Through 13 games, they averaged under 3 goals per game, while giving up many more. New York hosts the struggling Avs on Thursday before heading to Pittsburgh Saturday and hosting Tamp on Monday.
11/5/14: The Rangers have to learn how to score. Through 10 games, they are only averaging 2.7 goals per game, and that will not win a lot of hockey games in the NHL. They have a -4 goal differential, which would lead one to believe that they are losing. But they are above .500 at 5-4-1. The Rangers have a lot of games in a short time period this week: home against Detroit on Wednesday, at Toronto on Saturday, and back home for games against the Oilers and Pittsburgh on Sunday and Tuesday, respectively. These are tough games, but can be won if the team can put up some goals.
10/29/15: The season is only a few games old, but it is never too early to worry about extending one of the best defensemen in the game. That is what the Rangers are doing with Marc Staal. Staal is slated to be a free agent next summer and would probably be the best one on the market. He reportedly wants $6 million per year and the team is hoping for a bit of a home town discount. There is no deadline for a deal, but the Rangers would probably prefer sooner to later. The Rangers are home this week and host the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday, the St. Louis Blues on Monday and Detroit Red Wings the following Wednesday.
10/22/14: The Rangers opened up the season with an impressive road win against the St. Louis Blues. Since then, the team has struggled in all phases of the game. Through five games, New York has given up 20 goals and it is not easy to win games when you are surrendering four goals a game. The offense has not helped, they have only scored 13 times - an average of 2.6 goals per game. The Rangers have four days off this week before heading to Montreal on Saturday. They are back home on Monday to host the plucky Minnesota Wild, which should be a good chance to watch an up and coming team play.
10/15/14: The expected top teams in the Eastern Conference: the New York Rangers, Boston Bruin and Pittsburgh Penguins, look like they may be catching up with the top teams in the West. The Rangers showed that by beating the St. Louis Blues on the road in their season opener. The Rangers peppered the Blues with 16 shots in the first period and ended up winning 3-2. Unfortunately, defenseman Dan Boyle broke his hand, and is expected to be out four to six weeks. But the Rangers have enough talent to hold up in that run, and should be among the top teams in the Metropolitan Division again this season.
10/8/14: The Rangers will open their regular season on Thursday in St. Louis against the Western Conference giant Blues. That is a tough way to start the season, but it should give the reigning Eastern Conference champs a good measure on where they are as a team. In the meantime, the team has to figure out what to do with Anthony Duclair. He has been dynamite in the preseason but can't be sent to the AHL, he would have to go back to juniors from where he was taken. So the Rangers will have to decide whether to put him on the roster or burn a year of his entry-level contract to get him more development.
10/1/14: The New York Rangers played their first season under former Vancouver head coach Alain Vigneault last season and immediately found success. They seemed to underachieve when John Tortorella was in charge (who, incidentally, took Vigneault's old job in Vancouver and only lasted one year). The Rangers were second in the Metropolitan division in the regular season then rode a hot streak all the way to the Stanley Cup Finals. Los Angeles won the Cup series in five games, but the Rangers signaled that they are for real. They start their road to defending their Eastern Conference title on Thursday, October 9th with a trip to St. Louis to face the very powerful Blues.
